"Bad Leadership argues that it's time to embrace a more honest, holistic view of leadership that acknowledges the dark side of human nature and its impact on leaders and followers alike. In a departure from conventional thinking, Barbara Kellerman contends that bad leadership is not an aberration, but a ubiquitous and insidious part of everyday life that must be carefully examined and better understood." "Kellerman identifies two fundamental categories of bad leadership - ineffective and unethical - and highlights the seven types of bad leadership that are the most prevalent: incompetent, rigid, intemperate, callous, corrupt, insular, and evil. Through absorbing examples of high-profile contemporary figures from business and politics, Kellerman helps us to understand how and why particular leaders went bad, how their followers aided and abetted the process, and what lessons these stories hold for how bad leadership can be stopped or slowed."--Jacket.
